Bloxels' Digital Board Game Lets Kids Create Their Own Challenges

Bloxels is a digital board game with a unique premise: players are also game designers. The video game building system involves a physical game board and blocks, which are arranged to dictate what will show up on the screen of a tablet. During setup, colored blocks are used to indicate enemies, barriers, entrances and exits, as well as items that will be desirable for players to pick up.

Although creating your own game from scratch would normally require a knowledge of coding and programming, Bloxels takes care of that for you. With the accompanying B.R.A.V.E Squad mobile app, the experience transforms into more of a story about heroes and villains versus colored blocks that you simply want to get from the start to the finish of a board.
